Marigold - Pink Surprise

Calendula officinalis

Gorgeous, multi-layered flowers in a lovely color combination of apricot, powder pink, and creamy yellow. This variety is an excellent cut flower and looks lovely in bouquets. It also fits well in borders and is incredibly easy to grow. It blooms beautifully well into the autumn and is known to be a very healthy variety that rarely suffers from disease. Not even slugs seem to want to eat the marigold, which is a big plus for gardens that struggle with these unwelcome guests.

The flowers are edible and become incredibly decorative on pastries, in salads, or as garnish on dishes. Marigold can also be used in tea as it is said to have a calming effect on stress and anxiety. It is also popular to make both marigold oil and homemade skin ointment from this variety. The marigold has long been known for its medicinal effects, such as being cleansing, nourishing, and soothing for irritated skin. The magical flower is so gentle on the body that it suits both sensitive and dry skin as well as oily and impure skin. It is also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and strengthens the immune system.

Pink surprise is a disguised heroine in a beautiful apricot-colored dress and a real summer dream in bouquets!
